How To Remove Powered By Blogger Attribution Gadget From Blogger Blog Theme


Blogger is a simple, free and easy blogging platform that allows users to publish their passion their own way. Blogger has a blogging platform has embedded many templates/ themes in it dashboard to make users choose their choice if beautification easily but many blogger user has gone extraordinarily installing another theme/ template in their blogger blogs.

I am not trying to say premium blogger themes are not good. Now that many blogger users has decided to install other themes aside from the blogger recommended, they have added works to their blog in the way that they will keep editing the theme all day (especially newbie bloggers).

Default Blogger Themes including the new ones are embedded with  "Powered By Blogger" gadget. This gadget is suitable for custom blogger themes and not suitable for outside themes. Whereas, we should feel proud to use blogger platform and not other platform like WordPress, Hubpages, Joomla etc. But somehow and in some cases, most bloggers don’t like to show copyright attribute to blogger.

Just few bloggers prefer to brand their blog name. So they prefer to remove this default embedded copyright attribution from their blogger blog.

After being decided, the only issue bloggers in this condition will face is while removing the gadget. This is because on every gadget available on blogger's layout, they have save, cancel and remove option which performs functions you know but on this gadget (Attribution), there is no remove option which appears to be a serious issue for many newbies.

This issue is kindly common in non-recommended blogger themes. They lock this widget to get to backlink traffic from your blog when being installed and as well a means of advert to make your blog visitors know where you got the theme from. The solution to this is very easy and does not need you cracking your head.
